Thimble Down: A Mystery by Pete Brown


Synopsis: Thimble Down is a country village where death and malice lurk the quiet lanes. When the vile, drunken Bing Rumple acquires a gem-laden treasure, violence begins to follow him everywhere. Where did Bing find such a precious jewel, and worse, is someone willing to kill to possess it? In this fast-paced adventure, the village bookmaster, Mr. Dorro, and his young companions Wyll Underfoot and Cheeryup Tunbridge are in a desperate race to find the answer—before death comes to Thimble Down.

Thimble Down is the first book in the “Chronicles of Dorro” young adult mystery series, which follows Dorro, Wyll, and Cheeryup, on their exciting, but dangerous, mystery adventures. The second book in the series will be released in 2014.

Review: I have to say, I love this story. It reminds me a bit of the hobbit, with halflings and elves, but at least these little people can defend themselves if they have to. Thankfully it’s not as long as the hobbit, so it’ll appeal even to those of the young adults that don’t like to read for too long. The story is interesting, giving insight into this world. I feel like it’s a cursory glance, that will hopefully be expanded later in the series. It’s a very interesting tale, fill with characters of ill repute, as well a honorable characters, and plenty of lazy and greedy people. It’s a nice mix. I personally would love to know more about the elves, but I liked Dorro. He’s not the bravest guy around, but he has his moment. He seems like he’ll always come through when it really counts, and it makes it so much better that he’s really just a librarian with a knack for solving mysteries. Great story, and I’d love to read book two.
